The Best of Friends

Seeing as how I'm a writer (I'm sure you've noticed by now), and this is (more or less) a blog about things related to writing, I figured I might as well produce a bit of these novels I keep talking about.

The following passage is from my sci-fi/fantasy novel Chosen (more details in the 'Works in Progress' tab, if you're interested), and it sums up the relationship between two key characters in the series perfectly.
Description is vague (this is from the latter half of the novel, when we already know what they look like), but it's one of my favorites.

Ducking along the bushes, Thor bit back the stream of curses that had narrated their journey to Rue Court. “This is so not what I signed up for.”
“Oh, shut up,” Jaden hissed from the close-cut grass behind him. “This is going to work.”
“This is not going to work.”
“Since when am I the one that isn’t afraid of adventure?”
“Since you started getting laid.”
Jaden smiled. “It really does make a world of difference.”
“If the girls were here, you wouldn’t be saying that,” Marlow whispered as they crept along the stone wall that enclosed the vegetable gardens.
“Ilana would slap you silly.”
“She’s not as bad as all that, guys,” Jaden said, his words steeped with disapproval.
“You’re just saying that because you two are bonking.”
“Damn, Thor, don’t call it that. It sounds like I’m sleeping with a circus clown.”
The tall man shrugged. “To each his own.”

It always makes me smile :)



  1. LOL! Hmmm...bonking...wonderful word, greatly underrated :D

  2. Thor is my comic relief. And as a womanizer, there are many conversation such as these.

    I love Thor :D
